Patti Green joins MOWIT as outreach coordinator

Patti Green, a former professional recruiter, has joined Missouri Women in Trades (MOWIT) as outreach coordinator.

In her new position, Green will help with recruitment and retention efforts and track outcomes for the non-profit organization, which is dedicated to expanding opportunities for women to enter and succeed in apprenticeships and careers in the St. Louis-area union building and construction trades.

Green has spent the majority of her career recruiting female job candidates, beginning at Hickey Business School. She went on to recruit in the executive and law industries. Then Covid hit and she decided to retire.

“To be able to put all my talents together for MOWIT is one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done,” Green said. “Plus since most of our board members are volunteer and have full-time jobs, I’m able to attend all the job fairs and other meetings to give us a voice and the opportunity to be seen. We’ve had quite a few success stories so far.”

Green said her father was a Teamster organizer and she married a member of Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 562, so she’s well versed on how a union career can change a life for the better, especially for women.
